    We have 3 months to see which way the wind is blowing on this, if there is a genuine effort by the EU to strike a reasonable deal I would go with your idea but there hasn't been anything near a reasonable attitude to date. The plus for Boris is he has a cabinet that is strongly behind him and hopefully won't put up with the crap May's crawling encouraged, we still need the 'No Deal' as our fall back to concentrate minds...

    It makes me laugh when people talk about the EU being intransigent. They agreed a deal.

    Staying in the EU was a better deal than that, May was picking up no more than crumbs in negotiating from a self-inflicted position of weakness...

    Bob, no one is going to install a hard border.

    There are solutions and they've all been argued over already, so I won't bother again.

    Why is it that so many remainers are so sarky and patronising?
    Just stiffens my resolve all the more.

    Not too many forthcoming though. Solve this issue and you solve brexit. If only they had thought of this prior ! At the moment there is no solution and I agree we certainly dont want a hard border. Just imagine if the Scots gained independence and we had one there aswell. Neanderthal times, but that's what some dizzy old bastards want. Rule Britannia and all that!

    Why is it that so many Brexiters have such thin skins?

    It’s was a genuine suggestion which has been met by tides of negativity from the very people who are telling me to trust Boris and his call for positivity. I’m giving that a go, it’s only fair.
    There is absolutely no doubt that the EU will want a trade deal, probably along the same lines as the many they have already with Canada and Japan for example, if the UK does not want to be in the Customs Union or Single Market. The trick would be to tie the Withdrawal Agreement into it. The downside for Boris would be he couldn’t do Brexit on 31 October, but there would be plenty of motivation on all sides to get it done fast.

    I know there aren't otherwise it would have been solved. Some dont care about there being a hard border in Ireland. These are the bulldog brigade. England is the world!! The same people who hate all these EU laws being forced on us but yet cant name one that directly affects them. Even Boris ended up voting for May's deal. Another example of the mans hypocrisy.

    I am, but some of the **** on here does my ****ing head in.

    I'll leave you all to your doom and gloom and obvious, almost cult like affection for the EU.
